    Hi:)

    Not so long ago i found some split pipework coming form the hockey puck/disc thing:think:, it was various elbows and a few hoses, i got the new bits at Audi for about 80 odd quid:Flush:.

    I now can see another spilt in one of the hoses a small elbow under the inlet manifold, i want to replace a few bit under there when i fix this as its getting annoying splitting,

    I understand that people make up there own pipework

    , where could i get this?

    as i do not really want to justify spending silly money on some rubber pipe that will eventually just split again, thanks

    Yeah there was a record breaking thread by ollieh i think about catch tank. Getting rid of alot pipework. Didnt fancy it myself. Check out dpm site, they sell silicone replacements for the weak hoses, look tidy and standard.

    Do you mean on this hose?

    Here is one looking down by the right hand side of the inlet manifold (APY)

    Here is one looking down on the inlet manifold, bout half way along from above.

    and finally here is a view from in front of the inlet manifold looking towards the block, that is the dipstick tube on the right.
